Really cool place - get the train out here & definitely visit - if you only have a few hours in Kyoto make it this place - you can spend hours walking around but after 2-3 you'll probably need a break from all of the arches!

this is one of the best shrines to visit, it is very spread out in a hilly forest, you can walk for an hour or more through al the red inari. Very picturesque and not overly crowded like some of the other temples

Well worth the trip there. Hard to find so we used a English speaking guide. Combined a visit to the shrine with a stop at Gekkeikan Sake Museum. Shrine is very impressive and should not be missed. Nice walk in a truely Japanese neighborhood. Not much English in the area, especially the trains. Go anyaway!

Just one station from Kyoto on the JR Nara Line is the Inari station which is at the door step of this amazing shrine. There is no entry fee to visit this place and if you are interested with exploring the entire site, make sure you bring your walking shoes because this place goes on and on. It is surrounded by forest and hill side. Tip: bring mozzie repellent

We arrived late in the afternoon, admission is free and it's an easy train ride from Kyoto station on the JR Nara line. Despite this being one of Japan's most popular shrines we didn't find it crowded at all. The pathway wanders 4km up the mountain and is lined with hundreds of red torii and beautiful trees & gardens, extremely impressive. There is no need to walk the entire length of the path and in fact there are often people running up and down for exercise. You absolutely must wear comfortable shoes though. We decided to walk to the top and my feet were so blistered by the end. Amazing views so it was all worthwhile. Definitely worth the visit when in Kyoto.
